Overall Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

This film is really Evan Glodell’s baby. He not only directed but he also co-produced, wrote the screenplay, edited and of course starred in the film. The film also shows-off Evan’s real life obsession with building a flamethrower and he even built a custom camera. The film definitely has a unique approach when it comes to the cinematography, which is notable handled by Joel Hodge. The acting in the film is also very deep and really intense. You can tell the actors really cared about their roles and really dove deep into character. The story starts off slow but it finishes really strong.

The film tells the story of two friends who only goal in life is to build a “Max Max”-inspired flamethrower in order to fight in case the apocalypse comes. They also are in an imaginary gang called Mother Medusa. Sounds interesting right? Woodrow (Evan Glodell) meets Milly (Jessie Wiseman) and everything changes, as they fall in love. The film is love story at heart but definitely is much more deeper than that. There is something very dark about this film and that part really keeps you interested throughout.

This is release is another great one from Oscilloscope. There cases are 100% recyclable and come with both a Blu-ray and a DVD of the film. It also comes with amazing artwork from the film (remember that…artwork…not the usual empty case). The extras on the Blu-ray are also very notable. There is a very informative behind the scenes packed with great cast/crew interviews, set footage and more. The next extra is something I really wanted to see from the film, it is called “Medusa Rundown”. It is a look into the custom car that was built for the film, very cool feature. There are outtakes from the film as well, nothing special. Lastly original theatrical trailer wraps up a great release for one very interesting film.
